Depends: It depends on the procedure performed. Some surgeries allow you to walk right away, others may require non weight bearing for up to 3 weeks. Usually therapy can begin right away.

Depends: It depends on what exactly is planned for your arthroscopy; joint lining clean up, repair of talar dome lesion, ligament repair, etc. Non weight bearing can be anywhere from just a few days to as long as 6 weeks. You should discuss the surgical plan with your surgeon as he or she is best suited to fully answer this for you.
